Remember Your Loved One By Preserving Their Tatted Skin

No. (Rolls up newspaper...swats) NO!

February 14, 2020

Excuse the language, but what in the actual, morbid fuck.  People out there seriously wanna skin their dead loved ones, dry it out like jerky, to preserve, frame, and display it forever?  

You're sick, man.  Sick.

You know what I keep to remember my mom?  Pictures.  Clothes.  Jewelry.  A shoe. (My sister has the other one.  It was ma's favorite pair.)  That's what normal, well-adjusted people do.  They don't tell the mortician to "wait a sec" before he pushes the body into the incinerator.  Sorry.  That was pretty macabre.  This shit has me all kinds of twisted, though.

The dude who came up with the idea has a business called "Save My Ink Forever," where you can look into doing this for your loved one, you sick bastard.

Here's another pic:

more tat skin


You know how they do it?  This article says, "The process is not an easy one, nor a short one, and can take 3-4 months to complete.  The first step is that the tattoo gets surgically removed from the body at the funeral home within 72 hours of the person having passed away.  It can either be done either before or after the body is embalmed.  After the inked-skin is removed, it is then treated “with the same dignity and respect as with any funeral preparation process.  Afterward, the tattooed skin, which is a parchment, is then framed as wall art for the family to hang on the wall."

I feel like they're leaving out some stuff, but I'm sure that's for the best.

Oh, and they won't save genital or facial tattoos, because hey, this ain't a freakshow.
